You have no idea of the organisation of swap in the linux kernel. Do you?
Swap a driver. Really?
Have you noticed that in normal circumstances you can not have less than 65-70MB of RAM used on the phone. Some things are meant to stay in RAM and they do.
No i didnt read the article talking about the 9 wonders in kernel trap, i only read my favorites and kernel.org's changelogs. kernel trap is boring.
i remember reading about swappiness about 10-12 years ago when i really needed memory in my pc, i researched swap swapiness and i was testing for weeks in computers lacking enought ram, and i taked a decition then, and i will hold it until you demonstrate me than i am wrong. and i stated before, swap only is meant to be used in certain and specific conditions. (i never said its useless)
im not going to research swappiness again, just to respond your post, anyway, swapiness looked nice on paper, very promising, etc. but the fact is, im sure its the same thing used to be even after 10 years of development. And you know why? When you need memory no matter how good is the program swapping to disk. Disk is slow, terribly slow. period.
Maybe i dont know as much about swap as you, but this is old story wich will lead to the same results.
I readed your posts, and you maked same mistakes as everyone does when researching with swap, first too much swap=unusable, less swap = crappy, lesser swap=lesser crappy but still suck. continue to decrease that number until you reach 0.
But it is good that you have it enabled in your phone, and tell us how much faster your battery is drained, or when your memory card died, or how much time elapsed your phone switching apps or geting calls, and tell us then if that is worth or not and reconsider what you read in kernel trap.
Also its nice to have a poll on that matter.
The sad is google ****ed up with this phone, theres too much mistakes made with this phone. 1 ok, 2 ok, 3 ok, but there is A LOT of mistakes on the table now. im disapointed with google and its a matter of time people start hating it like hates microsoft.
anyone wanting memory, run service viewer. check services, processes, and tasks. take notes and start uninstalling stupid apps who start at boot with no reason and eats memory. there is a lot of them and should make a small difference.
apps who starts at boot are notified when installing them.
some apps starting at boot
text to speech <??? this really slow down everything for me
